Scanning documents and photos

ScanPapyrus is designed to scan any paper documents, books, magazines, or photos
and save them into PDF, DjVu, TIFF, JPG, PNG, BMP files.


ScanPapyrus can start scanning each page automatically at a specified time interval. Between every scan, you can turn the page of a book, flip to the next page of your document or replace the photo in the scanner.


ScanPapyrus uses an intelligent algorithm to split a book spread into two separate pages.


ScanPapyrus can automatically adjust the resulting image by increasing the sharpness, de-skewing pages, removing gray background, cropping the image, and removing the black stripes produced by the scanner when its lid isn’t fully closed.


ScanPapyrus can open any PDF or DjVu file and extract all its pages as images. You can edit the extracted images and save them to a PDF file.

Why ScanPapyrus?

Batch scanning

Scan pages without turning away from the scanner! Even if you need to scan 10, 20, or 100 pages of a document or a book, ScanPapyrus will help with the process. Do you want to scan a batch of old photos? Simply specify the time interval after which the program should start scanning the next page. You can use the time to change the page or photo in the scanner, and the program will automatically start scanning it. You won’t have to turn from the scanner to the computer, so you’ll finish scanning sooner.

Book scanning

Create high-quality electronic books twice as fast! It’s no longer necessary to scan every page of the book separately. Now you can scan whole book spreads, and ScanPapyrus will automatically split the image into two pages! One scan will get you two pages at once in your PDF or DjVu file!

Smart image processing

The smart automatic processing of images enhances the quality and speed of scanning. What if you’ve poorly positioned a document on the scanner? Don’t worry, because ScanPapyrus will straighten the image. What if you forget to close the lid of the scanner? No problem. ScanPapyrus will remove the black areas along the edges of the document. Moreover, the program will increase sharpness, adjust contrast, crop unneeded margins and convert the gray background to white.

Import from PDF or DjVu

Do you need to change an existing PDF or DjVu file? Or maybe you want to add pages to a PDF file, change the page order, remove some pages, or edit pages to improve their quality? ScanPapyrus allows you to do all these things. You can open a PDF file, extract its pages as images, edit the extracted images, and then save them to a new PDF file.

Advanced scanning settings

Automatic selection of paper source for scanners equipped with an automatic document feeder (ADF). If a feeder contains paper, then ScanPapyrus uses it for scanning, otherwise using a platen (glass).
Also supports duplex scanning, deskewing pages, cropping unnecessary fields, increasing contrast, and whiteness.

Support for many output formats

ScanPapyrus lets you save scanned pages to PDF, DjVu, TIFF, JPEG, PNG, or BMP files. Support for importing from and exporting to multi-page TIFF files.
Lots of settings are available when exporting to PDF: automatic detection of page orientation, flexible scaling and positioning, document counter, password protection, and many more.

PDF compression to the specified size

Some online services, such as banks or the internal revenue service, set a maximum limit on the size of each submitted PDF file. ScanPapyrus can compress a PDF document to the specified file size. When exporting the scanned pages, simply specify the desired output file size (for example, 2 MB), and the application will compress each document page to keep the file size within the limit.
ScanPapyrus can also compress existing PDF documents. Just open them in the application, and then save to PDF with compression.

Multilingual user interface

ScanPapyrus supports a variety of languages: English, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Finnish, Polish, Czech, Slovenian, Russian, Belarusian, Hungarian, Armenian, Chinese, Turkish, and Arabic.
